Dear supporter, Do they really think we've said all that we have to say? Do they actually expect us to sit back as they attempt to turn what could be one of America's greatest endangered species comeback stories into a real tragedy? Well if that's the case, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is severely underestimating us, and is in for a big surprise. Please send an urgent message to FWS demanding that they withdraw their delisting proposal. You've never been one to sit on the sidelines, which is why I've come to you for help. As we near the halfway point of the 90-day comment period on the proposed delisting of nearly all gray wolves in the lower 48 states, Defenders stands confident knowing that wildlife supporters like you will rise to the occasion and speak out like never before on behalf of wolves. Since the delisting proposal was made public: Sixteen prominent wildlife scientists have sent a letter to FWS denouncing the proposal as scientifically unsound;FWS has made no effort to answer a number of serious questions that have been raised about the science used to justify the delisting;A national poll has revealed that the majority of Americans support continued protections for gray wolves; andTens of thousands of wildlife lovers like you have come forward to demand that the delisting proposal be withdrawn.We're up against a well-funded opposition — an alliance of anti-wolf advocates who have made it their mission to strip these wolves of federal protection. Let's show them just how determined we are to protect America's wolves, and that we are far from giving up in our fight to do so. The pressure on FWS to go through with this misguided plan is intense and unwavering. This is why we needevery single one of you to continue to speak out against this reckless plan. We need to show FWS that we refuse to sit idly by as they attempt to abandon wolf recovery before the job is done! Science is on our side. And the passionate voices of concerned Americans cannot be ignored. Make sure FWS gets the message loud and clear: Americans want wolves to stay protected! Please sign our urgent petition today. Thanks for all you do. Sincerely, Jamie Rappaport Clark President Defenders of Wildlife P.S. Even if you have taken action before, you can still make a difference by demanding that FWS protects our wolves, please take a moment and voice your opposition to this misguided plan!
